What: Renowned storyteller Martin Dockery will perform his raucous and cathartic one-man show Delirium at the Kraine Theater as part of the 2020 Frigid Festival in his hometown of New York City.

Inspired by his grandfather’s book on the epic migration of the monarch butterfly, Dockery weaves a tale about the intersection of love and death. Traveling from Canada to Mexico, Dockery tackles the question of whether there is meaning and significance in an otherwise indifferent universe. Told in his uniquely energetic and immersive storytelling style, Delirium is as funny as it is soul searching.

Dockery has been touring the worldwide fringe circuit nonstop since 2009. Delirium is his ninth and most recent show. He has received over twenty best-of-fest awards, including, for Delirium, Best Solo Show at the Orlando Fringe and Outstanding New Play by NOW Magazine at the Toronto Fringe. He’s also written and performed in five two-person plays that have toured to festivals across the world. NOW Magazine, Toronto writes, “5 STARS: Renowned as one of the finest storytellers on the Fringe circuit, Dockery is a verbal magician who narrates with his whole body, who sees the extraordinary in the ordinary and by telling his stories helps raise our own level of awareness.”

Tickets are $20, either at the door or online here.
